Jeff Kennett speaks out

Then there’s the inconsistent way the government treats holders of government licences it wishes to alter or revoke. A commercial fisherman in Port Phillip Bay gets $1.6m when his licence is revoked, but a taxi licence owner who might have paid $500,000 for a licence is being offered $100,000. Where is the social justice? The Andrews Government is happy to pay big business $1b for a ripped up contract, but its treatment of those who own taxi licences is detestable.

There is so much to do

Have a good day.

Jeff Kennett is a former premier of Victoria
